The breather line back into the intake is one of the better way of relieving excess crankcase pressure. While it may get some oil vapors/mist into your intake, it's of no concern.
The problem is:
- too much oil pressure.
- this causes the oil to push past the turbo's dynamic seals
- can be caused from a number of things, typically poor drainage.
- pressurized crankcase.
- boost pushes oil form the pcv out the breather line.
- bad rings.
- blow by is forced out the breather line through the compression loss of the rings.
I don't see a drop of oil out my breather line into my intake. I did however when I had very poor rings.
The fact that without a pcv hooked up and you filled the catch can, I'm suggesting you check your wet/dry compression asI believe you have condition #3.
